Strike Back Renewed for Season 6 on Cinemax

The action won't stop

Liam Mathews

Do you feel your adrenaline level dropping? Well, Cinemax is here to keep it pumping.

Cinemax has renewed the British-American action series Strike Back, the cable network announced Tuesday.

Strike Back's fifth season on Cinemax is currently airing, with its season finale scheduled for April 6. The series follows the clandestine activities of the Section 20 special ops team as it fights crime and terrorism all over the world.

Season 6 will technically be Strike Back's seventh season. The initial six-episode season was produced for and aired on the Sky One network in the U.K., and Cinemax got involved as a co-producer for Season 2. So it will be the seventh season in the U.K. and sixth on Cinemax.

The current cast includes Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, Alin Sumarwata and Nina Sosanya. This incarnation of Section 20 will likely return, but the show has undergone plenty of cast overhauls in the past. The first occurred after the first season, which starred Richard Armitage, and then the cast was rebooted again for the revived current season, Retribution, which saw new actors replace Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton.

Cinemax's Strike Back Will Never Go Out of Style

Strike Back airs Fridays at 10/c on Cinemax.
